Horrifying thought... - Elf M. Sternberg
Horrifying thought...
While thinking about superaging and how ongoing difficult, discomforting effort is what keeps our brains from deteriorating, I had a horrifying thought. It sometimes seems as if our senators and congressmen in their 60s, 70s and even 80s are surprisingly spry and nimble-minded, for all their ideologies are cast in concrete. Maybe the reason for that vigor is just that being a politician, whether they're meeting with constituents or negotiating with backers, involves being constantly in difficult, and distressing situations far outside anything vaguely resembling the human comfort zone.
